When we adopted Fetty, her name was Quark and we were informed that she was rescued from a hoarding situation all the way in Montreal. She had arrived at the shelter with her littermate who, for unknown reasons, was adopted before her. She was almost four months old, had an eye condition called symblepharon from having suffered a respiratory infection as a baby, and crawled all over anyone who would let her.

Now, she is six months old, lives in a four-story cat condo inside of our people condo, sleeps in our bed, and uses the litter box in our bathroom. Also, Fetty has trained us to play fetch and peekaboo. Peekaboo involves her taking cover (behind the shower curtain, for example), meowing quietly, and jumping out at us when we approach, only to then repeat the cycle until we get tired.

Her favorite toys and plants change, but her affectionate, fun-loving, endlessly curious comportment doesn’t. When we adopted her, we knew she was a blessing, but it’s only through lots of attention and the passage of time that we are discovering just how much and what kind.

Thank you, Humane Society, for giving these pets a chance at life and a channel to loving homes - they deserve it!
